HD6 meets on the FIRST Tuesday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Christ Church United Methodist church, 690 Colorado Blvd, Denver (on the southeast corner of Colorado and 7th). Enter the church parking lot off 7th.

Please join us for our next monthly meeting this Tuesday, April 1st.

Time:  6:30 pm social gathering, 7 – 8:30 pm meeting

Location:  Christ Church United Methodist, 690 Colorado Blvd, SE Corner of CO & 7th

Agenda:

1. Joe Neguse, Candidate for CO Secretary of State, will speak and take questions.  Come meet the man who will replace Scott Gessler!

2. Councilwoman Mary Beth Susman will update us on matters before the Denver City Council.

3. Voter Registration Training.  Turnout will be critical to winning the upcoming elections, and we have several voter registration drives planned in the coming months, including the high schools in late April and early May.  We need your help with those drives.  Anyone doing voter registration has to receive training every calendar year.  So even if you have been trained numerous times in the past, if you have not received a training in 2014, you need a current one.

We look forward to seeing you on April 1st.

Dan Schoen

We write with very heavy hearts to acknowledge that Dan Schoen, our wonderful Finance Chair in House District 6A, passed away on Monday.

Dan embodied all the best of our Democratic ideals.  He was compassionate, hard working, devoted to justice, and always fighting for the underdog.  Dan was Executive Director of the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar and a tireless advocate for the accused.  He was dedicated to our work in the Democratic Party, and always ready with a helping hand.

Dan leaves behind a young family and many friends and colleagues.  We hold them in our hearts today.  We are grateful to have known and worked with Dan, and we will miss him terribly.  We will post further information when we know more.

In sorrow,

The Officers of Denver Democrats House District 6

Ralph Nordhauser

 

Ralph Nordhauser
 
On June 27, the Democratic Party of Denver lost one of its long time leaders. Ralph Nordhauser was Captain in four different House districts even though he lived at the same address.   Ralph was a Democratic Party volunteer for almost 70 years starting as a teenager in Northwest Denver, culminating in 2010, when Ralph received the DPOD Lifetime Achievement Award. 
 
Ralph was a trusted advisor to US Senators, Congresswomen, Governors and Mayors. Candidates for these offices as well as State Senate, State House, City Council and Denver School Board sought his extensive knowledge on what works in getting elected in Denver. On occasion the answer was not what the candidate wanted to hear, but it was always truthful. 
 
In addition to politics, Ralph was a successful businessman and was active in the community associations in the Mayfair/ Montclair neighborhood. He had a network of contacts that was useful on so many levels.
 
Above all else Ralph was dedicated to his late wife, Eleanor and his two children Lisa and Steven. He was a longtime friend and mentor to me and is the sole reason that I am a Captain in the DPOD. I will miss him and his advice.

Agenda:  Representative Lois Court and Senator Michael Johnston will give us a wrap-up and take your questions about the incredible 2013 Legislative Session.  Senator Johnston will also update us on the ballot process regarding the recently-passed School Finance law, which is especially important given the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision in the Lobato case.

 

In addition, we would like to hear your suggestions for topics for future monthly meetings, and whether you would like us to hold a meeting in July, given the first Tuesday’s proximity to July Fourth. 

 

If you can’t attend our June meeting, please email me your topic ideas and let me know if you would attend a meeting on July 2nd.
